Wallpapers and images featuring humour, fun and slapstick. There are many things that make people laugh and many reasons why they do so. Analysts have strived for years to identify what makes something funny and why people laugh at different things. The humour scale is not consistent across different cultures - the act of laughter is universal across all cultures and races but the subject of that laughter differs considerably.
We can look at a number of different factors as to why we laugh at what we do - intelligence, personal values, cultural values and personality. We need to have the intelligence to understand a joke, if we don’t “get it” we don’t laugh (or we pretend to laugh). Our personal values dictate if we find some jokes funny - racist or homophobic jokes, for example. Or if one had suffered post traumatic stress disorder, one might not find army jokes funny. Cultural values have some influence on the funny bone. British people laugh at jokes that make fun of germans because of world wars 1 and 2. People of other nationalities would not find these jokes funny because they do not have the same cultural influences and history as the british. Our individual personalities also influence what jokes we find funny. This is a very personal aspect of humor, obviously, that is difficult to identify or quantify. People just find different things funny. Some people have difficulty actually finding anything funny - they just don’t “get” humour. People with autism can find it difficult to recognise what is meant as humour. In conversations they often don’t recognize conversational clues that humour is being used and can take things literally rather than in the way intended. Sociopaths and Psychopaths often have difficulty with humour. They recognize and understand the jokes but the laughter they respond with is not actually authentic but just an appropriate response to the situation. They don’t truly find the joke funny.
